How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing since middle school from journal entries to short stories and now books.


Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?

I normally create the main character and the antagonist then the supporting characters come to me right before I start plotting my novel.


What kind of research do you do before you begin writing a book?

I interview people. I go to locations that I may describe. I also search on google and go to the library for materials. I believe the best research is interview people in the profession you are writing about and people who have been through what your character is going through.


Do you see writing as a career?

I most definitely see writing as a career. This has been a dream of mines since high school and now that my this book is coming out, it makes me want to pursue this full time. I believe it can be done without being signed to a traditional publisher especially if I put the work in. 


Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?

I am an avid reader. I don’t leave home without a book.


My favorite genres are mysteries and thrillers. I also read paranormal, fantasy, contemporary fiction and women fiction. I mainly like books that have a mysterious and or suspenseful element to it. 


Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?

I prefer to write while Murder She Wrote plays on the television in the background. It helps me stay focus on the task at hand.


Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?

Since finishing this second book, I now have been drafting one book but outlining another one. I do it on separate days, but still try to work on two books at a time.


Pen or type writer or computer?

I outline with pencil and paper and then move to my computer. I mainly plot and outline with pencil and paper then I type it on the computer. After my outline is clear then I work on writing the book on the computer.


Tell us about a favorite character from a book.

Two of my favorite character is Lane from the Killer Instinct by S. E. Green. She is a teenager who is obsessed with serial killers because she wants to be one. Lane’s character is intelligent, creative, and a bad ass. I also love that she is sneaky and can hide in plain sight. 


My second is Mary from Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson. Mary is a character you should fear on any given day. She is very calculating, manipulative and knows when to appear innocent, so you stay on her side. You don’t figure out her dark side until it’s too late.  I love her so much.
